I have a '07 Pontiac G5 GT. When I am making a left hand turn (tight turns) it seems like there is a 'grinding' noise coming from the passenger front wheel. At first I thought it was the bearings, but it's fine through all other turns along with straight driving. So I am guessing that it is the CV joints on that side. I did some research and it would make sense to replace the drive axle shaft which would have new CV joints in it. Does this sound about right? I typically do my own repairs and also have a Haynes manual so I figured this would be a job I could do at home, any input? Is there anyway of telling if that would be the proper side before ordering the part? What other issues could cause this?
have the same problem?
